I am all about the idea of salary transparency and everything but do you have people in your life who are jealous of the salary you make and are constantly trying to compete? And not just with you but with your entire friend circle? This made me not wanna tell my real salary. And let’s be honest some people with the same job title in a different company will be making more or less money than you depending on other things. Just wanted to see what are the thoughts of other people here.

If they’re true friends then they’re probably just excited for you and really want to move up in life where you are and make around the same amount. I’m always transparent about money when friends ask, and especially when someone makes more it lights a fire for me to continue trying to be better.

As long as it’s not gloaty and everyone is humble about it/ constructive all around to try and help each other out I think it’s totally normal to be transparent about salary. If it irks you then just stay away from the convo, and if people are being standoffish then they probably aren’t true friends that are happy for your success

I never share my salary with any of my friends. They might have a idea but they don’t know the exact number. I feel like it’s something I don’t need to share with them.

I am certain I make a lot more than most in my social circle so I don’t bring it up

Had an interview with Deloitte for M role in Strategy and Analytics, and they down levelled to SC. I asked recruiter and she said that the SM thought I was better at SC. Salary is 170k base plus 22.5k signing and upto 17% bonus (target probably half that). After not signing it, had a call with the principal who said he sees it more like a one year path to M but I don't trust it especially after they levelled down. Does it make sense to jump? In Lighthouse currently , 142k base and M1.
